High school musical comedy Glee could be forced to change its name when shown in the UK after a High Court ruling found it had breached the copyright of British comedy club chain The Glee Club, which has branches across the Midlands.
A judge found in favour of Comic Enterprises, the company owned by Mark Tughan which runs comedy and music venues called The Glee Club in Birmingham, Nottingham, Oxford and Cardiff. Tughan's lawyers argued that potential customers stayed away from the clubs, mistakenly assuming that they were connected with the series, which follows the fortunes of teenage members of a musical performance group at an American school. An action was brought against the shows' makers Twentieth Century Fox in 2011 and in February this year they were ordered by a judge to "cease naming" the programme Glee. British Glee fans shouldn't expect to see any change to the show's title for the moment, though, as the case will next go to the Appeal Court. Does this reckless experiment prove the new Ghostbusters film can exist in the same universe as the original?

A new Change.org petition has been created, calling for BBC TV presenter Sir David Attenborough's name be changed to "Boaty McBoatface". The UK's Natural Environment Research Council originally turned to the public for a name for the new research liner with "Boaty McBoatface" winning the popular vote. The UK government has decided that a new polar research ship will be named after Sir David Attenborough, 89, famed for his BBC TV natural history programs. So Boaty McBoatface was the favourite name by a breezy ocean mile for the UK's new Royal Research Ship - but will it actually make the cut?
Angered members of the British community have launched the petition in defiance of the council’s decision. The petition does not advocate for the change of the ship's name, but instead calls for Sir David Attenborough’s own name to be changed to Boaty McBoatface.

But for many supporters of the petition, the rejection of Boaty McBoatface is about having the popular vote honoured. The Change.org petition currently requires only 78 more signatures to achieve its target of 1,500.
Soon after the government’s decision to name the ship after Sir David Attenborough, this public petition was created on the UK Parliament site. A Dub Name Change is when one, several, or all the characters have their names drastically changed with the importing of a fictional property. Usually it's meant to be a Woolseyism, when name changes are made so the audiences of the foreign country can better understand and relate to the characters. Fans of the original material are likely to get upset about or ignore the name changes (and some are legitimate Macekres) but other fans have embraced (or at least tolerated) these name changes.

In a unique tribute to Leicester City's extraordinary success in the Premier League, staff at a restaurant in Leicester have officially changed their names to those of the squad. People who eat at the Pizza Hut in Haymarket will now be served by Jamie Vardy, Wes Morgan, and Riyad Mahrez, after twelve members of staff changed their names by deed poll. Manager Charlotte Smith has taken the name of Foxes boss Claudio Ranieri, and is now officially Ms Ranieri. The chain registered the name as a UK trademark in 1999, a decade before the TV show was created. They challenged the decision claiming it was unnecessary and disproportionately costly but on Friday the ruling was upheld by the High Court.

Wouldn’t it be great if Sir David changed his name to Sir Boaty McBoatface in the interest of democracy and humour?” reads the petition. Names are also changed to avoid controversial names (or have different meanings in another culture like Mr. The name has been deemed by many to be offensive and anachronistic, something that should be left in the last, by a lot of people who feel they need to say something.
Boaty did more for the cause than any other name would ever do!” said one support commenter.
Satan), prevent trademark infringement or retain Meaningful or Punny Names that would otherwise be lost in a more pure translation. As well, some are not actually changes but a romanization or translation that is easier for foreign voice actors to replicate.
Now the most powerful person in the land, the President, has agreed, sort of, saying that if he owned the team he would change the name and is open to the current ownership doing so, that they have his permission to change the name if that is something they might want to possibly do in the future.
In the case of video games, these have often come about due to limitations in the number of characters used in a name (Japanese names can be much longer than names written in English). Also worth noting is that it's actually common practice for foreigners to adopt European names in real life because it's easier than having to explain how to pronounce their original name again and again.
Sometimes not all the names will be translated, leading to Aerith and Bob situations in some cases. Japanese names are an exception because their naming convention is easier for European language speakers to grasp.
